Every Wednesday now, I have Toastmasters. Each meeting has a theme. I’m going to try to regularly blog about the theme or topic of the meeting, just as an exercise in thinking and writing.
The theme this week is “New Beginnings.”
I think about the number of new beginnings I’ve had in my life. I think about the obvious ones: the time in my life when I decided to follow Jesus; the day I moved to college; the day I graduated from college; the day I married Jason…
But then I remember that Lamentations 3:22-23 says:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
God’s mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Every day is a new beginning. Every day is a chance to begin again. It’s never too late. You can always make a change. You can always get a fresh start. Sometimes you have to wait until morning, but morning always comes.
May this morning be a new beginning for you, too!
